Is it New Bike Time? Always! 11/11/2019- Still no rain in sight! This great weather can't last forever but hey, who's complaining, it's great not having to worry about overheating on a ride.
Got a bike that needs repairs? Our backlog is finally getting reasonable. Generally we're now in the 3-5 day range for major repairs, which is much better than the two weeks we were quoting just a short time ago! If you purchased your bike from us, remember that you can bring it in anytime, without calling ahead, for minor on-the-spot adjustments of brakes, gears and wheels (at no charge; this is included with any bike purchased from us).
Shock servicing: Presently we send forks & rear shocks out for servicing; it generally takes 2-3 weeks and runs about $260 for a fork rebuild, slightly less for most rear shocks. We don't recommend servicing any shock over 8 years old.
Hydraulic brake servicing: We no longer bleed or repair hydraulic brake systems more than 7 years old. The results are generally unacceptable and the cost of a replacement brake, which includes pads, isn't that much higher.
